about taking their findings as the new law of the land. that their findings about him were correct. he had to show he was serious about that, and if he did that, maybe they would lift the lifetime ban they had imposed upon him. the second thing he had to do was build public sympathy. try to remind people why they fell in love with lance armstrong in the first place. on the first front, failed miserably. he actually drew a line through the heart of the usada report. the heart of the report said that lance armstrong was actually a doping ringleader, that he wasn't just another cyclist who used peds, but that he organized his team to actually use dope. >> he wasn't accepting of that last night. >> no. he said absolutely not. and today they are not happy with that interview. on the second front about building public sympathy, i mean, my word, i felt like i was watching the titanic hit an iceberg. i felt like oprah kept trying to help him, like throwing him lifelines, like try to make yourself more sympathetic, please. all he could do is stare back with this reptilian look on his face and r
, they would even say no to their own ideas. >> this law failed by seven votes. when seven republicans, who had co-sponsored the bill, had co-sponsored the idea suddenly walked away from their own proposal after i endorsed it. so they make a proposal, sign on to the bill. i say, great. good idea. i turned around, they're gone. what happened? >> this was a hallmark of president obama's first term. republicans were going to say no, no, no, no matter what he offered. even if what he offered was their own idea in the first place. that is how it went for months and then that is how it went for years. and now, what's new? he is not doing that anymore. >> i have put forward a very clear principle. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to play the same game that we saw happen in 2011. so we're not going to do that. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to do that again. as i said earlier this week, one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. what i will not do is to have that neg
differently. the problem with the gun control debate from the perspective of folks who want gun control laws is they need to say, we don't want to target lawful gun owners. 47% of adults in this country say they have a gun in the home. you want to say, we want to separate out the people who are gun trafficking and doing other things that promote the climate of gun violence from that cause of lawful gun owners. i think the nra, they win by losing. the more you have a debate around these issues the more it seems we're going to get more gun laws, the nra builds intensity that way. >> erin, that's the mistake that i've been saying from day one. this should not be a gun control conversation. it should be a gun violence conversation. and if you are talking gun control, you're playing on the nra's field. if you say gun violence and you broaden it, that's a different debate. that's been the problem from day one. >> all right, thanks to all of you. you always want to have the home field advantage. if they have it, they have it. >>> doctors racing to save the vision of a man who was attacked with acid
and above the law. that's what happens. >> a bottom line to you, paul calan, you talk about losing so much of his money. will he have anything left of his $125 million fortune? >> i think a lot of it will be burned up in these lawsuits. i doubt he's going to get indicted by federal authorities for criminal conduct because the statute of limitations has been run but if i was his lawyer i'd be a little worried about that. we'll have to see if there are second acts in american life as f. scott fitzgerald said. for lance armstrong i really doubt it. >> thanks to all of you. we appreciate it. >>> still to come, one american hostage dead in alger ya tonight, but some americans have escaped, and one of them talks to cnn. >>> plus, the president has made gun control a priority. but fewer than half of americans of actually approve of what he's doing. the blooirn, is then ra winning the gun debate. and the arctic tick director of the most famous ballet in the world has been attacked with acid. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the clou
a budget. tts rule of the law that by april 15th, you have to. so, we're saying we will extend the debt limit until the timeline where you have a budget, a road map. so you stop digging yourself in the hole and we get out of this problem. part of not having the budget has gotten us into this problem in the first place. >> the senate is had an operating under the 2011 budget control act. demanding the senate pass a budget really doesn't do anything. it also violates the so-called boehner rule, which requires any bill to have cuts equal to the rise of the debt ceiling. republicans are making up for this by saying congress will get paid -- will not get paid unless the senate passes a budget. even republican congressman darryl issa knows it's a violation of the 27th amendment not to pay congress. when told about the plan, issa said that's unconstitutional. he wants a paycheck. now republicans are claiming the plan will just withhold pay for congress. so all of them will get paid, no matter what. what is it? it's just a big sham. it's just a big game. nancy pelosi rejected the plan as a gimm
americans want stricter gun laws. and obviously, there will be opposition up on capitol hill. there is some bipartisan support for what the president is doing, but i think in general, there is a sense that now's the time to get it done. so that will be a big priority for the president. >> we've also been talking quite a bit about the debt ceiling. we now have the president, he's already gotten this offer from the house republicans for this extension, this three-month extension. and then i guess that nobody would get paid if the senate doesn't buy this. so do you expect a big fight ahead on this as well? >> well, we expected a much bigger fight. there was that sense that this was building up to be like what we saw in the past. but the white house says they're encouraged by what republicans are doing. you hear senate majority leader harry reid as well, saying that they're encouraged by this move. because, as you know, republicans were saying that they would not raise the debt ceiling on this. there were these equal spending cuts. and the president came out and said, i'm not going to negotiate
